后苏哈托时期见证了印尼华人的族群意识与文化复兴,其中华人历史纪念馆的兴建成为华人族群文化意识复兴的一个重要象征。本文在对印尼华人纪念馆田野调查的基础上,考察了后苏哈托时期华人历史博物馆兴建的动因、机制与意义。印尼华人博物馆的兴建,不仅体现了华人对族群历史文化的追溯与传承,同时也反映了华人与当地的融合与政治认同的变迁。更值得指出的是,华人历史博物馆通过华人参与民族国家建构历史的展示重新塑造了华人的集体与文化记忆。Post-Suharto period witnessedthe ethnic awareness and cultural renaissance of Chinese in Indonesia,which could be observed from the booming phenomena of Chinese community's efforts in the field of Chinese language education,Chinese newspaper publishing and Chinese associations. Meanwhile,it is worth noting that in Indonesia,several Chinese museums have been set up since 2011,which are becoming the significant space to narrate Chinese migration story to Indonesia and preserve Chinese culture and heritage in Indonesia. Based on the observation of the initiative and exhibition of museums,this paper argues the contemporary Indonesian Chinese Museum is not only a great help to the conservation of the Chinese historical and cultural heritage,but also is an effective way to the construction of Chinese collectivecultural memory. Moreover,the exhibitions of the Indonesian Chinese museums present the feature of Indonesian Chinese's identification with Indonesia and history of indigenization. In the end,the paper concludes that with the rising trans-nationalism of global Chinese community in the global era,Indonesian Chinese museum is playing an increasingly significant role in disseminating Chinese culture and building people to people communication between China and Indonesia.
